Flow State

Have you ever felt like everything is going great? Like one thing after another just falls into place? You have? That's called a flow state! 

When I design dresses I like to tap into a feeling I have, or I would like to experience.  This is the Lana in Protea Ocean from Mersur. This dress feels like flow state! Everything moves seamlessly through space and time. Catrin our #mersurmuse from Sweden moves like a flow state through the time continuum. Like this dress? You can purchase it in two colour ways on our shop page. Protea Ocean (blues and pinks) and Protea Sunrise (reds and oranges)
